Though I "Am Not" a welder myself, I do own a Mig welder and weld and fix most everything from lawn mower decks to my boat trailers myself. Mig welding is not all that difficult to pick up and apply in most cases, but if you are working on a potential safety concern such as trailer hitches where failure could cause death or injury to others, please do as I do and leave the welding to a professional. You could possibly pick up a few tips from this site http://www.submarineboat.com/welding_steel.htm.

I learned quite a bit on how to weld aluminum on another page of the above site, which was real useful in rebuilding a boat that I did.
